Finding ordinary items and transforming them and giving new life, game me the most satisfaction as an artist.
It seems that even from my youngest age I can remember being involved with some sort of draft. My early years brought the usual crayon art that we begin to express ourselves with. As I grew, so did my desire to try other mediums. Clay, colored pencils, charcoal all became new interests. Through the years I have seemed to dabble in all art forms. My greatest pull came from producing art with a function. Finding ordinary items and transforming them and giving new life, game me the most satisfaction as an artist.
I currently have found a home with my best pieces yet. Mosaic Illuminations was born from home improvement leftovers. After finishing a fence and backsplash project I was left with wood and tiles. I looked at these extra pieces for many days knowing that I could make something from the over run. I produced the first 3-tiered mosaic tea light set in April of 2011. This was just something I made for my own use around the home. It didn’t seem long till interested parties were inquiring about where I bought them. Most wanted a set of their own. Sure, I’ll make you a set, I uttered. Numerous sets later and many happy friends, I’m keeping the ball rolling with many different tiles and designs.
